Chances of seeing the Stanley Cup

Today marks the end of the gruelling campaign for the presidency of the United States. However, unlike an NHL season (remember those?), the winner of this campaign will actually have a very good chance of seeing the Stanley Cup. Multiple times, even.

If only it was that easy for the Presidents' Trophy winner. Sigh.

But I guess winning the Presidents' Trophy is very prestigious just in and of itself. I mean, you not only get the Trophy and a guarantee of two, maybe three home games in the playoffs, but the NHL even has a separate web page to recognize the winners...oh for God's sake.

Anyway, sharing a name for the ultimate prize (oh shut up and just go with it) is not the only thing in common between the NHL and the U.S. political system...

Evander Kane has plenty of reason to be happy. But he could be even happier.

On the surface, it seems like Evander Kane has it all. He has a $31.5 million contract with the Winnipeg Jets (whenever the NHL resumes play), talent that allowed him to score 30 goals in the best league in the world at the age of 20, all the fast food grub you could possibly want, and a follower count on Twitter that exceeds 106,000 (even though he isn't exactly all that frequent a tweeter).

But two things that he doesn't have are a satisfactory background and header image for his @Kane9JETS Twitter account. And that's why he has laid down the gauntlet to not only Jets and Evander Kane fans, but anyone with some semblance of creativity and/or expertise when it comes to designing images.

After the jump: 20-ish articles covering a range of subjects. Which player overseas has had the most impressive performance so far? Why is the CHLPA imploding? Who were the best free agent signings of the last CBA? Zack Kassian or Cody Hodgson? Perhaps most importantly: who is Roberto Luongo mocking with his new Twitter avater?
